Nokian launching summer tyres in Japan
Nokian has announced that it is introducing its Hakka summer tyre range in Japan. The product line will be available to Japanese consumers beginning in April.
A next-generation rubber compound, tread pattern, and structure improve Nokian Hakka tyres’ wear durability and reduce rolling resistance, allowing the tyres to roll lightly and quietly while saving fuel and the
environment, the Finnish company said.
According to the company, the tyre line offers “balanced performance on dry and wet surfaces, good wear durability, and safety and driving comfort from spring until late fall”.
The selection includes the Hakka Black 2 designed for fast driving, the wet road champion Hakka Blue 2 for mid-sized cars, and the eco-friendly Hakka Green 2 for smaller family cars. The Hakka Black 2 SUV and Hakka Blue 2 SUV, which are designed for larger SUVs and crossovers, are also available.
The size selection ranges from 14 to 21 inches and covers speed ratings from T (190 km/h) to Y (300 km/h).
Nokian’s Hakkapeliitta winter tyres are already available in the Japanese market.
